Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0836827929, Library Binding)

This dynamic series introduces the basic concepts of science to young readers. Each title focuses on a common curricular theme to help build a solid learning foundation and encourage a lifelong curiosity about science and nature. Through a combination of clearly written text, colorful photographs, informative charts and illustrations, intriguing puzzlers, and investigative activities, young readers are invited to actively explore the wonders of their complex and fascinating world.

Aspiring architects will enjoy this introduction to construction, engineering, and design. They will learn how and which types of machinery are used to build large structures, and how different professions cooperate in putting together a project. Also discussed are the construction processes for bridges, tunnels, and skyscrapers-and a fantastic journey to the construction site of the Pyramids of Giza.
